I've used SEM to grant a Windows user account (Bob) system admin rights to sql. I mimicked the settings of the Builtin/administrator account to the "Bob" SQL user account. How ever when I log on to the server using the "Bob" user account SQL doesn't start up. I've followed the directions indicated in the "Adding a SQL Server Login" in SQL Server Books Online, but still no go.
